We’re getting married at a summer camp facility in October. There’s a lake, a treehouse for photo ops, and we’re going to reserve cabins for overnighters who party too hard. We’re thinking outdoor ceremony by the lake, followed by a parade to cocktail space and then reception. We’re going to have food stations to encourage mingling. And libations. Check out the board and give feedback
However there are few concerns about the wedding. My dad’s a pastor and congregation members will be attending. my fiance says i shouldn’t be concerned much about what people think about the drinking and the dancing since we won’t be at church but i’m still worried about it. so it’s up in the air between the dance party (because i love to dance) and a church brunch. or could i do both? tell me what you think.

I say go with the dance party! Your father would let you know if it was going to be an issue, so if he says go for it, there is nothing to worry about 🙂

Dance party. It’s what you want, and it’s your wedding.

I’d go for both– have the cocktail hour and the first bit of the day be laidback and casual church brunch, then break out the dance party about 1/2 way through– the guests who don’t want to party can go home, and the rest can stay andcancethe night away.

I’d say go for both as well. The early portion of your reception can be light and fun, with plenty of good food, conversation and cocktails for those who wise, and once the music gets going and people start dancing and having fun, those that want to leave will do so. But at least you’d make everyone feel comfortable without sacrificing what you really envision as your perfect reception!
